Portrait of a lady from a good family

An installation of overhead light, photography, a feather and a vibrator.

Created during an artist residence at the MuseumsQuartier Vienna. Shown during the Vienna Art week, November 2014, MuseumsQuartier, open studio days.

The projected image is constantly recreated, driven by the interplay of light, water and motion.

Tableau vivant a living image

A running vibrator is suspended from the lens of the overhead projector.

Attached to the vibrator is a feather, which delicately touches the water surface below.

A picture of the lady floats in a water-filled glass while the vibrating feather tickles the water surface.

The eternal play of image and feather appears as a projection above the bed.
